War Stories [1954 to 2019] feat Sabaton, Piet Botha, Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Marley, The Doors

A mix inspired by Sabaton’s album “The Great War” (to be released 19 July 2019) and the ultimate South African Border War song, “Goeienag Generaal” by Piet Botha.

I have also included “Jacob Klipkop” by Piet Botha, a song about Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, which I don’t believe has properly been addressed in the South African context.

“Battle hymns for the broken,
battle hymns for the misled”
– from “Battle Hymns” by Tom Morello

Playlist Creator | Web Marketer The son of a church organist father and pianist mother, South African born Brian Currin grew up surrounded by music. In his pre-teen years he realised that he had no real talent for playing music and he couldn't sing, so he immersed himself in the world of music by listening, exploring and researching. Which he still does today. He spent many years in corporate sales and marketing until his involvement in the re-discovery of Rodriguez, opened up a whole new world for him. He is very involved in promoting South African music, and is the co-owner of a number of music-related websites including www.rock.co.za which he founded in 1999.
